PhD Studentship (Fixed Term)

The University of Cambridge in partnership with Anglia Ruskin University is pleased to offer a 3 year PhD studentship available from October 2019. The PhD student will be enrolled in the Department of Land Economy and the degree will be awarded by the University of Cambridge.
This PhD studentship is part of the project FIDELIO (Forecasting social impacts of Biodiversity conservation policies in Europe). A key aim of the project is to develop a model that will improve understanding of human perceptions of the social impact of protected areas in Europe. The project uses a mixed methods social science approach. The successful applicant is expected to have a BA degree and Master's degree in relevant subject fields (for example environmental or human geography, environmental policy, environmental economics, economics). The successful student will also need to have had some training in statistics and an interest in European conservation policies.
The studentship is funded by the Department of Land Economy (through the FIDELIO research project) and Wolfson College. The successful applicant will become a member of Wolfson College and have access to all the facilities offered to its PhD students. This studentship amount will cover UK/EU-level University fees and a maintenance allowance of approximately £14,000 per year. Students not eligible for UK/EU-level fees may still apply but the difference between these lower fees and the higher Overseas fees must be covered by the applicant.
